Fighting ovarian cancer one postcard at a time.

I just learned about UK artist Jennifer Dangerfield, who has created an interesting—and fun!—project to help fight ovarian cancer. It's so simple:
  • Let her know you want to play by e-mailing her and she'll send you a code along with her mailing address

  • Mail a postcard to her

  • And that's it! For every postcard she receives, she will donate $1 (up to $250) to Ovarian Cancer Action. You will be entered into a drawing to receive a jewelry prize as well!

This is the piece she is giving away for first prize. How gorgeous is that?! Check out the others.

Check out her blog for full details. I've told her I will play and she sent me a very nice e-mail with all the details in no time at all. And it's fun to see the postcards she's received so far.

It's an important cause and a fun project. A win-win in my book. Leave me a comment if you decide to play!

This is so great - my MIL died of ovarian cancer a few months before I started dating DH. Thanks for passing it on.

ps - do you mind if I copy this post (not word for word, but pretty much) to my blog?
